My lame story actually involves two NYE "celebrations."
The first was actually going quite well. I hosted a large party at my house with plenty of food, drinks, and tons of friends. We finally rigged the projector in time to catch the last 7 seconds of the ball drop. Everyone rejoiced! Everything was tons of fun and the night was truly one to remember. However, I woke up the next morning only to find that someone had stolen my $1,500 laptop. Not exactly what you want to notice when you wake up on the biggest hangover day of the year. I never found out who did it, and despite the tracking software on the computer, it was never found.
The second didn't start so well. I was working at my first job as a line cook in a 250 seat restaurant. By the time the night was over, we had served over 600 people (making 8 cases worth of avocados of guacamole was nowhere near fun). Luckily I had my Tojiro DP I purchased rom CKTG. Still my favorite of many knives to this day. Anyway, I returned home to my house where we had essentially a duplicate party of the year before. I was thoroughly exhausted, working harder than I had ever before. A few days prior, knowing I wouldn't be present for most of the party, I went to the hardware store and purchased a latch and a padlock to my room specifically so nobody could get in. So I walk up the stairs only to find that someone had broken down my door, torn down the doorframe, rummaged through my doors and stolen my checkbook. No, I am not kidding. I was not happy going downstairs to rip the plug out of the speakers and shout "EVERYONE GET THE F$#! OUT" to all of my best "friends." Luckily, nothing happened with the checkbook, but two consecutive NYE parties were totally ruined. And the rat was never discovered.
Pretty lame, right?
